In-Progress In Mexico City: Nationwide Series Practice And "NASCAR Now"

The Nationwide Series is alone in Mexico City this weekend. The practice coverage is on Friday, qualifying is on Saturday and the race is on Sunday.

ESPN2 opens the coverage with practice at 4PM Eastern Time for two hours. Jerry Punch will team with Rusty Wallace and Ray Evernham for the coverage. Reporting from the garage for practice will be Vince Welch, Dave Burns and Mike Massaro.

The dynamics of road racing and the wide variety of drivers should make for an interesting practice session. Road course "ringers" will mix with Hispanic drivers and the Nationwide regulars.

Following the practice session, there will be a thirty minute version of NASCAR Now at 6PM. The program should focus on the upcoming race, and will hopefully continue the nice blend of mixing the studio anchors with contributions from the on-site ESPN announcers and reporters.
